This colorful unit block set has materials for endless creative building projects: 200 solid-wood blocks in nine shapes and four vibrant colors. The abundance of materials lets children execute their building ideas without restriction, and are great for collaboration and group play, too: It?s easier to be generous with hundreds of blocks to share! The open-ended nature of block play is perfectly suited to the way children play and learn best, letting imagination and natural curiosity lead the way. Children can experiment with form and function as they create stronger, taller, wackier structures, or create amazing play scenes with characters and narratives. The bright colors and variety of shapes in this big set add to the fun by adding a punch of color and polished form to towers, arches, ramps, and more. There is no limit to the ways kids can play and build!</p></div> <h5><div id="header1">An exciting way to learn</div></h5> <div class="a-spacing-small" id="text1"><p>The nine shapes in the set relate to each other mathematically: Two triangles make up a square; two squares equal one small rectangle; a small rectangle and a square equal a long rectangle . . . and so on. Children don?t need to have any math knowledge before they begin, but as they play they?ll begin to make observations about equivalencies and differences, draw conclusions and make estimates, and play with counting and matching?all of which lays the groundwork for later math skills. Physical skills are boosted as well: The action of lifting and placing blocks to build a tower builds strength, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and hand-eye coordination. This set is designed on a smaller scale that fits little hands perfectly, allowing for a secure grasp that builds confidence as little ones build and play.</p></div> <h5><div id="header2">About Melissa & Doug</div></h5> <div class="a-spacing-small" id="text2"><p>Melissa & Doug toys are designed to fuel imagination, inspire exploration, and encourage the natural curiosity that leads to a lifetime of learning!
